Being laid off is extremely stressful, and became even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic when the usual education, training, and job search options were not available due to shutdowns. The Governor’s Workforce Council, the Connecticut Department of Labor, and Connecticut’s five regional workforce development boards responded by launching the statewide SkillUp CT.
Designed with input from Connecticut employers, SkillUp CT helps workers who plan to return to their former employer as well as those who are looking to change careers by offering free and unlimited access to more than 5,000 high-quality Skillsoft online training courses for 180 days.
Skill tracks include customer service, Quick Books, Microsoft Office, Adobe, data management, leadership skills, first aid, and more.
